How many women artists do you know? Who makes art history? Did women even work as artists before the twentieth century? And what is the Baroque anyway?

Learn about remarkable female artists throughout history with Katy Hessel, art historian and founder of @thegreatwomenartists. Delve into the works of Sofonisba Anguissola during the Renaissance, the pioneering pieces of Harriet Powers in 19th century America, and the true inventor of the "readymade." Discover the beauty of Dutch Golden Age, the groundbreaking art of postwar Latin America, and the influential women shaping contemporary art. This groundbreaking book challenges traditional narratives and shines a light on often overlooked art forms from around the world. From the coast of Cornwall to bustling Manhattan, and from Nigeria to Japan, The Story of Art Without Men is a remarkable retelling of the history of art.
